All’s blooming again
Kind- hearted people have sent donations to help rebuild an outdoor learning centre trashed by vandals.
Last month the Post told how heartless yobs destroyed Holmston Primary’s garden area, leaving pupils and staff with a major clean- up job.
Vandals tipped over plant pots and furniture, wrecking the outdoor facility which the school worked hard to create.
The vandals even snapped the apple tree which was kindly donated to the school.
But, thanks to the Post, donations of raspberry bushes and a £ 50 cheque from Forehill, Holmston and Masonhill Community Council have been gifted to help rebuild the garden.
The school’s Deputy Head Teacher Katie Reid told of the pupils’ disappointment when faced with cleaning up their hard gardening work.
But now the pupils will look forward to blossoming raspberry bushes in the coming summer months.
Katie said: “We’ve got it tidied up now and we’ve just been donated some raspberry bushes and £ 50 from the community council to help us put some more flowers and plants into our containers.”
The Deputy Head told pupils the good news of the cheque gift on Friday at assembly.
